2016 Young Leader Training
The Namaste Nepal Unit has been promoting the idea with Scout Leaders in Meghauli of starting a Young Leader section for Scouts who have reached their leaving age.
In October, 10 leaders and members of the Unit visited Meghauli to run a Young Leader Training Camp. 15 Young Leaders were given an intensive 3-day induction programme in preparation for a weekend Scout Camp – which they were asked to run!
As might be expected, the training camp began with some trepidation amongst the travelling party and the Nepalese Young Leaders. By day 2, the Young Leaders were warming to the task and by day 3, were thoroughly engaged.
Fifty Scouts attended the camp. By common agreement, it was a huge all-round success.
